3.0 out of 5 stars On the Fence, 6 May 2014
This review is from: F.E.A.R. 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
For an FPS stand alone game it's not bad.Good graphics,plenty of mindless violence but i felt that there was too much time devoted to story telling and the player is unable to skip the flashback scenes.If however, like me,you have played FEAR 2,brilliant, and the FEAR 1 trilogy,excellent,then i would suggest that you are in for a disappointment.Gripes are : no manual save feature,you can only carry 2 weapons and no first aid kits(health is restored by hiding out of line of fire).My biggest problem was that certain functions did not have a dedicated keyboard allocation which resulted in some frustrating moments,especially when wanting to use the machine guns on the vehicle.Once i had resolved that problem the game did flow much better.Have to confess though that i used the slo-mo feature a lot.I like the idea of playing as either Point Man or Fettel ,once you have unlocked him as it were..My advice is buy it but don't expect too much.

1.0 out of 5 stars GFWL Disaster area, 3 July 2013
This review is from: Bulletstorm (PC DVD) (Video Game)
1 Star may be harsh but that is how i rate the whole package.Game loaded OK but when i went to start kept on going direct to a games for windows live small screen to verify date and version of game and then nothing,zip,zilch,nada.Both EA and GFWL support non-existant so after a day wasted,even trawling forums on the game,have thrown in the towel.Will avoid GFWL in the future as it appears from posts both here and elsewhere on the web that it is a disaster area to be avoided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have,must read., 4 Aug 2012
Whether a newcomer or seasoned sceptic this book is a must for the personal library.A very easy read with a clear explanation of established views,alternatives and the author's own personal take.I found myself conducting further research after reading this book to get a better understanding of certain aspects.The theory concerning the limestone blocks forming the Giza pyramids is a real eye opener.

As other reviewers have commented i was also a bit hesitant in the begining about this book in view of the foreword by EVD;bad publicity lasts a long time and can cloud our judgement.However, i read this book with an open mind and glad i did.

Overall an excellent reference book that i know that i will reread.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clutching at straws., 3 Aug 2012
More fodder for the mushy brained tin-foil helmet brigade.The authors propose a feasible theory which they turn into hard fact and then proceed to try and validate it by questionable mathmatical calculations.Units of measurement are interchanged,multiplied divided etc to arrive at a desired result.366° and 360° systems are mixed to validate the construction,alignment of the Thornborough henges.But the best was on page 77 "What is more 366+360=732"Really,not 726 perhaps?1 star is still too good for this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile purchase., 2 Jun 2012
Very interesting read.Not too heavy but complex enough to make you concentrate on all the characters and their relation to the story.The author makes some enlightened observations about human nature that we tend to accept as a given without further consideration.Everyone loves a happy ending and this book didn't disappoint.Read it in a day and will re-read it in the not too distant future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge Letdown, 11 Dec 2011
Very disappointed with this DVD.Extremely poor picture and sound quality.The biggest fault was the thick black line across the bottom segment of the screen obscuring about 20% of the view.Only fit for the rubbish bin.Wish i could give it a minus star rating.
